Tasting Notes

This vintage is full of ripe, cherry-scented fruit with enticing notes of clove, allspice and rosemary mingling with accents of forest floor.  The wine is smooth with a supple mouth feel and a surprisingly weighty mid-palate.  Pair with grilled salmon, duck confit, veal or farmer's market rosemary or fennel sausage.

Technical Notes

This fresh, fruit forward Pinot Noir is crafted to provide early drinkability and freshness. The winemaking process was true to house style with extended skin contact at fermentation, following an intensive hands on viticulture regime. This wine was barrel aged entirely in (20% new, 80% 1- 3 year old) French Oak barrels. It may be enjoyed now, or will develop gracefully with careful cellaring of 3-5 years.
